Jeff, One Lonely Guy

We were interested to read today about Jeff, One Lonely Guy, a book born out of an unlikely flyer Jeff Ragsdale posted around Manhattan after a traumatic break-up.

On the flyer he gave his phone number and asked people to call him if they wanted to talk, signing off ‘Jeff, One Lonely Guy’. From the thousands of calls, voicemails and texts he received, far beyond his expectations, he has created a book with Michael Logan and HH author David Shields, which remixes all the messages and communication into a book about America, about loneliness and about love.

Bret Easton Ellis has called it ‘The definitive document so far of where our medium is heading’.

We are officially intrigued.
